    It is being met immediately with rejection, so this must be because of the material itself.
    Very good, very good. You're on the right path ─ but not quite there yet. Your staunch advocacy of the material and your attitude are also to blame to a certain extent, and I would even daresay that both here at The One Truth and at Project Avalon, it would have primarily been your behavior that created the unpleasant atmosphere you've experienced. I can't speak of all the other forums where you've posted your material, and quite frankly, a couple of them ─ most notably Above Top Secret and Godlike Productions ─ are so far removed from The One Truth and Project Avalon in management style and culture that we might as well be talking of an alien planet.

    But I will grant you that the initial objections are to the material, indeed. I doubt whether anyone would be criticizing yourself as an individual before having looked at the material. I mean, it's possible, but not here at The One Truth, and (to the best of my knowledge) also not at Project Avalon. And whereas I myself am concerned, the material and your behavior here as a posting member are strongly related, but yet distinct at the same time.

    I realize (and consent to) the fact that it does get confusing what exactly any given member here has been criticizing, because in the end, it was you who brought this material here, and it is also you who is advocating said material. So there is some intertwining going on between the message and the messenger, and then ultimately, all that remains of the discussion is just one big argue ─ a badly muddled pack of back-and-forth bickering that no one can still make any sense of.

    And then in the end, everyone leaves the table with heightened emotions.

    It is not simply evangelizing if I am able to explain my position and why I am advocating for it.

    Why would you be? Nothing i said was meant to "amuse" anyone

    If anything that statement could be twisted to prove you right in some ways. I don't think you even tried to figure out what i wrote

    Exactly, why should I be amused?

    Why should I try to figure out what you wrote, does it have any real significance?

    You would know the answer to that if you were not so lazy and spent 5 seconds trying to figure it out See? You keep on being the same no matter what.

    You lie and act the part, thinking you can tell people what they want to hear and you'll gain their support and empathy, but just a small disruption brings up the true nature of your mind just like it happened right now.. All that stuff you wrote for Aragorn? That's just fake words

    Just wondering, have you ever got a tardy before? And how many have you gotten so far?

    You don't know what you are talking about, you don't really know me.

    Of course I have, but why is this relevant?
    Only 4 so far this year.

    I don’t need to know tons about you, but I know enough by your own words

    Tardies say way more than you think they do. You moved recently, are those 4 on the new school or the old one?

    What you think you know about me does not have to be correct.

    They are from the old school.

    Perhaps they do reveal some things about a person but don't take this too far.

    It can show how responsible someone is, which can tell you a lot about them as a person.

    I will ask you the same question now, have you gotten tardies before?

    Whatever I do, I will always be criticized for it one way or another.

    You are only ever willing to criticize me. Your focus is on me, not my words. You want to describe me, but you don't want to answer to my words.

    It is easy for you to criticize me but hard for you to answer to my words.

    It is always about me, because words provide a smaller target then the person speaking them.

    She is the one who keeps going after me.
    She went after me on ATS, then followed me to PA, and now TOT.
    It has now been a month and a half that she has persisted in this. She only came here after my ATS thread got closed for staff review.

    I really do not understand why me and this topic matter so much to her that she has to keep going after me persistently and across forums. I tried to ask her but she didn't answer my question, as usual.

    Do we really have to spell it out for you? I think Fred made it perfectly clear...
